FYI

http://www.nzherald.co.nz/topic/story.cfm?c_id=289&objectid=10514702

I guess greedy Sky has once again grabed everything.

"Sky Television has been actively buying up IPTV rights for programmes including those it screens on Sky and Prime."

I'm quite disappointed. I've been waiting with an ethernet socket next to our TV, eager to try a revolutionary all-in-one freeview+IPTV set-top-box.
That's not going to happen any time soon.

It might happen within the next 12 to 24 months, as it looks as if the government is going to make a move on Sky for monopolistic business practices. I caught some news clip a few night ago stating as much anyway.

As a sidenote, does anyone know if Sky owns Prime and Triangle TV?

Then you'll be even more disappointed to see the following from The Independent, 5 June 2008, page 11:
"Telecom has disbanded its six-person internet television unit, which was to sell Freeview set-top boxes that could download TV programmes over the internet.  Telecom was testing Microsoft's IPTV platform, which former head of video services Phillip King said last year was the only one that could be integrated with Freeview's digital terrestrial television menu system."

Indeed. Lately I had read somewhere that Kordia/Orcon wanted to make tvnz on demand traffic cap-free.
I wonder if that's still in the plans.

I hope they are still working on making  tvnz on demand traffic cap-free, as the only reason I don't use it is because it would use up my cap way to fast!
